The WV Ethics Commission was created in 1989 to implement and enforce a code of ethical conduct enacted by the Legislature for public servants (W. Va. Code §§ 6B-1-1 through 6B-3-11). The Ethics Commission also issues Advisory Opinions, and provides informal advice, concerning the Open Governmental Meeting Act (W. Va. Code §§ 6-9A-1 through 6-9A-12), although it does not enforce that Act. The Commission consists of nine members appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. The Commission meets monthly, generally on the first Thursday, and is supported by a staff of five full-time and two part-time employees.
